|I am just starting out with the raw diet for my 12 year old Roger who has eaten mostly kibble, and a little canned for his entire life.
Roger was happy to give up kibble, contrary to many folks' experiences. He loves his canned food.
I bought him a cornish game hen and some chicken gizzards. I cut the game hen up, bones and all, with the kitchen shears and froze it. I give him a couple of thawed pieces of it for his mid-day snack.
It really touches my heart to see how happy he is to get the raw food. He does a little dance with front paws raised as I set the dish down. So sweet! He looks like a little black panther shredding his meat. His teeth seem to be good. He has no problem dispatching the food.
Through all the years and cats gone by, I thought I was doing right by them by feeding a "quality kibble". I can't remember now where I got the idea that kibble was best. Anyway, I plan to eventually get Roger eating only raw. I want to learn exactly what I need to do to achieve a balanced diet for him. Until then, he will get some canned along with his raw.
